  • There has been lots of talk about boosting baits in recent years but one thing I have not seen much information on is how these ‘boosting’ procedures effect other aspects of the bait rather than just the attraction of them. The most obvious example of this is when you see someone complaining about the lack of buoyancy in a particular pop up and then you find out they have had them sitting in 2 inches of liquid for 6 months so I will start with how I boost my pop ups.

  • Rather than a do’s and don’ts style pop-up tips piece, I’m going to share with you how I fish pop-ups, why how and where and give you some useful advice to think about. I’m not saying you need to rush out and change your components, switch your rigs up and change the bait you use, but this is more of a food for thought piece that may open your eyes and get you thinking differently about your pop-up fishing.

  • I’d been enjoying my boat on the river immensely but had also been very much looking forward to some autumn fishing on the continent. I often find myself torn between home and away, especially this year, but I fish a lot and always have done so it’s essential that I keep my angling diverse in order to keep me motivated. I’d penciled in several trips for the autumn and the first was just around the corner.

  • It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, and it can be dificult to get everything set up with a solid bag, but this technique is a tactic well worth adding to your armoury. Not only is it a great presentation offering a mouthful of food to an inquisitive carp, but it also ensures your rig does not tangle, and can even be cast at great range due to the nature of the aerodynamics of a tightly-packed solid bag.

  • I was back down the lake midweek for a quick night, arriving just before 7pm. The nights were now starting to draw in so I only had about an hour of daylight left. Based on experience I knew that the last hour of light was best used in locating fish rather than rushing to set up before dark. I was so well drilled on my overnighters, that setting up in the dark was not an issue and I was full of confidence when it came to finding spots and positioning rigs.

  • Most of you reading this will have started out fishing for carp with bottom baits, whether that be luncheon meat, sweetcorn, boilie or pellet. Today they are often over-looked for pop-ups due to the nature of a pop-up fishing more effectively over a wider range of debris on the lake bed.

  • I will typically take five kilos of boilie with me on any given session, like my current syndicate water Vinnetrow or a day-ticket lake for a weekend for example. You can always whack it back into the freezer or, if you prep it right, it can last over a week in a bucket perfectly fine. Whether you choose to air-dry your boilie, soak it, glug it or preserve it, as long as you do so effectively it will prolong the baits life before it turns beyond the point of being usable – remember that a bait on the turn can often be very effective as the sugars start top be released.
